    How much ram does my laptop screen use?


    Hello,
    I remember hearing that a laptop screen uses RAM too. And I was wondering if that is true and how much does it use?

    Never heard this before, not even with a desktop monitor.

    If you have integrated graphics, part of the CPU, that will use RAM but not the monitor/screen itself. And the amount varies based on the CPU and type of graphics it has plus amount of RAM available.
